CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- Another day, another list of NBC schedule changes:
-- The Peacock has quietly announced it will drop one of its two planned episodes of "Miss Match" tomorrow night in favor of another installment of "Dateline NBC." The remaining new episode of "Match" ("I Got You Babe") will air at 9:00/8:00c, sandwiched between two "Dateline" episodes, the latter of which features the tagline "A Katie Couric Special: Bringing Elizabeth Home." The freshman series is also still scheduled to be pre-empted on October 31 in favor of a two-hour edition of "Dateline."
-- In addition, NBC will expand its special Tuesday, November 4 episode of "Fear Factor" to 90 minutes. To make room for the extra half-hour, "Frasier" will move to 9:30/8:30c bumping "Good Morning, Miami" for the night. The special "Factor" starts at 8:00/7:00c, displacing regular time slot holders "Whoopi" and "Happy Family."
-- Lastly, the Peacock has also extended "Boomtown's" production hiatus for another week. The series was set to resume shooting on its seventh episode this week. NBC executives are expected to make a formal decision about the sophomore drama's fate next week.
